Priorities for Acceptance: The following groups receive a priority status regarding enrollment: siblings of current students, staff children, members of an area Church of Christ, children of WCS Alumni and families enrolling more than one child.
Pre-K3 and Pre-K4: Students must be 3 for admission into Pre-K3 and 4 for admission into Pre-K4 before August 1st and must be toilet trained. Students are accepted on a 6-week probation period.

Step 3: Shadow Visit
Once Step 2 is completed, a shadow visit will be scheduled for applicants for grades 5-12. The OLSAT can be administered during the shadow visit. Grades K3-4th attend class during their testing visit. Please call the Admissions Office for details.
Step 4: Testing
Please refer to the “Admissions Testing Dates and Guidelines” section of the Admission Dates and Deadlines Page.
Step 5: Principal Interview
All Applications and records are previewed by the Admissions Committee. Upon approval, the family is given an appointment for an interview. Both parents must attend the Principal Interview, and applicants for grades 5-12 must attend as well. Prior to this interview, families should review the WCS Parent-Student Handbook located on the WCS website.
Step 6: Admissions Decision
Once the Admissions Committee has determined a student’s admissions status, a letter will be sent to the parent/guardian. The student’s application will either be accepted, denied or put in a wait pool. The committee’s decisions are final. It is the policy of Westbury Christian School to not discuss admission decisions with parents/guardians. Please notify WCS if your child enrolls in another institution so we can remove them from the wait pool. The wait pool will not be maintained past September 1.
